Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

In 1994 vormen Patrick Monahan, Jimmy Stafford en Scott Underwood in San Francisco de band Train. Na wat personele wisselingen voegen zich ook Johnny Colt en Brandon Bush zich bij de band. In 2001 wordt Drops Of Jupiter hun wereldwijde doorbraak. Het nummer bereikt in de Top 40 de derde plaats.

Jarenlang lijkt de groep het bij één hit in ons land te houden. Toch komt er bijna tien jaar later een meer dan succesvolle opvolger met Hey Soul Sister. De single staat zeven achtereenvolgende weken op nummer 1 en wordt hun grootste hit in ons land. Ook de opvolgers Shake Up Christmas en Drive By weten de top 10 te bereiken.

De drie singles van het album California 37, 50 Ways To Say Goodbye, Mermaid en Bruises (met Ashley Monroe), komen niet bij de beste 10 terecht.

In september van 2014 verschijnt het nieuwe album, Bulletproof Picasso, waarvan Angel In Blue Jeans als eerste de Top 40 bereikt. Later wordt ook de titeltrack van het album als single aangemerkt.
Eind 2015 maakt Train een compleet album met kerstnummers. Een cover van de klassieker van Slade, Merry Christmas Everybody, wordt als single aangemerkt.


Songtekst

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's a time to change, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey

Tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

Now that she's back from that soul vacation
Tracing her way through the constellation, hey, hey
She checks out Mozart while she does tae-bo
Reminds me that there's room to grow, hey, hey

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
I'm afraid that she might think of me as plain ol' Jane
Told a story about a man who is too afraid to fly so he never did land

Tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back to the Milky Way
And tell me, did Venus blow your mind
Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there

Can you imagine no love, pride, deep-fried chicken
Your best friend always sticking up for you even when I know you're wrong
Can you imagine no first dance, freeze dried romance five-hour phone conversation
The best soy latte that you ever had . . . and me

But tell me did the wind sweep you off your feet
Did you finally get the chance to dance along the light of day
And head back toward the Milky Way

[Repeat 1st Chorus]
